We're well into our social year with the Salmon Bake, Margarita 
Madness, and Octoberfest behind us.  To date I am slightly under 
budget, just where I want to be. We've been having lots of fun this 
fall with more social events on the horizonů

Thank you Jytte and Bob Wheeler for another wonderful Octoberfest!  It 
occurred to me at the event that this "Friday Night Social" has been 
entertaining over 100 guests for the last several of the nine years now 
that Jytte and committee have been doing this.  The food and drink, and 
the live Bavarian music were a real treat. 

By the time this Towline hits the streets the Halloween costume party 
of October 31st will be upon us.  Mona Lisa and Mike Ryan are the 
chairs for this event, which is open to our NBFs (non-boating friends) 
and other clubs.  At last report it was looking to be very well 
attended.  This event features LIVE MUSIC performed by Classic Ride, a 
band including two of our own members, Kevin McStay and Cal Ormiston.  
It's been a while since we've had a Halloween party around the 
clubhouse.  It promises to be a lot of fun!

Andy and Nancy Kupp will be hosting our "New Member's Night" again this 
year.  It will be held on Friday, Nov 20th.  This is a wine tasting 
party that has become a tradition at BYC.  Sponsors, be sure to invite 
your new members and new members, be sure to be there!  We appreciate 
you, and this is one of your best opportunities to meet some of the 
members of your club.  If no one invites you, show up anyway and look 
up one of the bridge officers.  We'll make sure you get introduced to 
other members and that you have a great time!

We are now in our second year of transitioning to a new form of 
government where our e-committee has taken on greater responsibility in 
the management of the club.  In some cases this has created confusion 
and even some frustrations.  I encourage all of you to be patient with 
this process.  Key to getting through this will be a simple 
understanding of who does what.  Most of this is published in our 
by-laws as found in your Annual but some of this is a work in 
process. Don't hesitate to ask the bridge for an interpretation.

Speaking of our Annual, it's here!  This year Leslie Hunt has 
done a spectacular job!  We have new covers, lots of pictures, and many 
improvements.  There is one free annual for each household, which may 
be picked up at the club store.

Warm Regards,
